A Yellow Dot in the bottom left corner of the rear window of your vehicle will alert all First Responders to the vital medical information in your glove box. This will help ensure that you receive the medical care you need during that first ‘Golden Hour’ after a crash or other emergency.

You can be part of the solution. Sign up for yourself and each member of your family. Share the information with your friends and neighbors, and all those who rely on you for transportation.

  • Advanced Care Directive - HELP!
    In order to ensure that our wishes are carried out when we cannot speak for ourselves, everyone needs to have an Advance Care Directive. The Advance Directive form available below may be used to spell out in detail all your instructions. If you're not comfortable doing that yet, you might consider something a little less comprehensive. You can do this by preparing a statement of your wishes, sign and date it. Dr. John R. Dykers, Jr., M.D. has shared his own end-of-life plan as follows: "if you can fix me, please do. If you can't fix me, please help me avoid pain, fear, lack of air, hunger, nausea, thirst, loss of dignity and prolonging the dying process. I understand that it might take a few days to figure out whether you can fix me or not." You can add your own words. This is a good way to start and to facilitate the conversation.

  • Advanced Care Directive - FORM
    You have the right to give instructions about your own health care. You also have the right to name someone else to make health care decisions for you. The Advanced Care Directive form lets you do one or both of these things. It also lets you write down your wishes about donation of organs and the selection of your primary physician. You may complete or change any part of the form to meet your needs.
